    Hi,
    Per the client request, I need to modify the EditAppointmentDialog. Is there some way, to change the text "Categorize" to "Building".  Also, is there some way to remove (hide) the "Importance" icons? All appointments will have the same importance, and the client does not want the user to be able to change the importance.

    (maybe a hack would be to change the resource strings to rename "Categorize"? If this is the only option, how would I do it?)
    Thanks!

    Hi Sammy,

    You could check this help topic where it is explained how you can customize the EditAppointmentDialog, If you generate the EditAppointmentDialogStyle and search for PART_Categories, you'll find the RadComboBox that holds the categories. Modify the EmptyText property to change that value.

    In the same place, just underneath the PART_Categories you will find
    <telerik:RadToggleButton x:Name="HighImportaceButton">

    Delete this block to remove "Importance" icons.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the reply and the link. I  did see it, but I must be having a village idiot moment today.

    You mention "f you generate the EditAppointmentDialogStyle and search for PART_Categories"

    Ok, how exactly do I generate the EditAppointmentDialogStyle? I'm using VS2010 as my editor.

    Thanks!

    Hi Sammy,

    I meant that EditAppointmentDialogStyle  which is part of RadScheduleView template can be generated through Blend Preview for Silverlight 5.

    But in your case, using VS2010,  you could always get the whole xaml of the ScheduleView control from the installation folder of the Telerik components on you machine. Usually this is
    C://Program Files/Telerik/RadControls for Silverlight Q2 2012/Themes/ . Inside this folder, search the Themes folder to find the ScheduleView.xaml file that corresponds to your theme of choice.
    From it you could get the style of the EditAppointmentDialog and the necessary brushes and templates.
    Then you will be able to customize it completely to fit your requirements.
